That's similar to mine, and yes it id subject to getting wet, and bogging,

A simple shield would help that. Use a bigger can and cut the top off, trim the sides to the height of the filter.
drill some drain holes in the bottom. adapt the bottom to whatever you are using for a filter base.

For my use, since I don't get a whole lot of mud access. I don't really worry about it.

Did you have any problems ? I was always concerned about water seeping into the carb around the butterfly's.

a little bit of seepage general you will burn off. i know i have had water splash over my engine and flooded the carb and it still kept running because it wasnt to much to kill my engine.

Well I found out today when I went to ride my mower that was sunk completely under water, that it got water in the oil and had a ton of blow by so now I have to drain it out change it and hope I didn't damage anything when I ran it today Mad

it wont help the blow by obviously. just maybe help the oil splash inside. its really easy as long as you drain the oil first and soak the bolts with wd40 or penetrating oil spray
